“Wonderful location and service”
Reviewed 29 August 2014

We stayed there for a quiet getaway after our daughter's wedding in Legian. I could not fault the service and wonderful attitude of all the staff. It was my husband's birthday while we where there and the Chef made him a special cake and it was delivered to our Villa buy 6 staff members with candles and of course singing happy Birthday. Nothing was too much trouble for them. We decided to have all our main meals there as the food and service was great. I would like to go back there with all the family for a holiday - they have a wonderful 4 bedroom Villa with lots of outdoor areas for everyone. The valet driver service into Ubud whenever we wanted it was spot on, also collection when ready to go back to Villa.

Room Tip: All Villas looked amazing

I have stayed at Bidadari three times in the past and cannot wait to get back there.

I have traveled with my sister and mother.

I have traveled with my husband and another couple.

I have traveled with my extended family (including four children, my parents and my sister's family).

Bidadari is so diverse that it caters to all kinds of holidays.

Why do I keep returning to Bidadari?

Its that feeling of butterflies in your stomach when you arrive, it seems as though the wind in the trees picks up any stress and whooshes it away. Within 30 minutes you will feel this incredible sense of unwinding.

The villas are beautifully designed as you will see on the internet and the valley that you overlook is not justifiable by photographs.

Bidadari is not cheap and nor should it be. There are other places in Ubud that hold the five star excellent rating, but make sure you take the time to read the reviews. The reviews of Bidadari are personal, its not just about the room or the food (which are very Balinese and perfect), the reviews are about Rana and his GENUINE staff. They will know your name, they will look you in the eye, they will smile with not only their mouth but with their eyes and their heart and they will be genuinely interested in your day.
If however you want privacy they are attuned to acknowledging your requirements and ensure that your privacy is obtained with utmost care.

It is a little out of Ubud however this is not a problem at all. You will be provided with a mobile phone to be able to call for a car to collect you from Ubud at any time. Bidadari is different from resorts and the like. There are no communal areas and your meals are served privately in your own Villas. The spa on their property is tranquil and overlooking a bubbling brook, when you get down to the spa the staff greet you with kindness and a lovely drink and then they work magic with their hands on you. The treatments at Bidadari are nothing like what you would get in Ubud township for cheaper dollars. It is absolute high class spa treatments, well worth spending the extra dollars to spend some time at the spa.

Do not miss this opportunity to be embraced with hospitality you never knew existed and enjoy.

Bidadari is not just a place to stay, it is a destination which will leave its mark on you.

We stayed here for 4 nights as part of our honeymoon and it was just perfect. We got upgraded to their presidential suite which was like a dream - huge swimming pool, massage area, 4 bedrooms, a massive sitting room (couches, TV etc), dining room overlooking the forest, just amazing. The food and service was great, and it was away from the noise and crowds of Ubud. I highly recommend having a beauty treatment in their spa which is nestled amongst the trees next to a river. If you're looking for total tranquillity I definitely recommend staying here.

We were very impressed with our recent stay at Bidadari. All the staff made us feel very welcome and nothing was ever to much of a problem for them. The staff are a great team and it had a lovely family feel having lots of the staff from the local village. It was perfect. The views of the jungle were amazing, the food was good and the cooking course good fun. Thanks everyone

As a couple we has a great stay at bidadari villas. One of the things we both noticed was how friendly and attentive all the staff are, there is also a sense of community with most if not all the staff coming from the village where the villas are located.

We stayed in villa 1 which was closest to reception but very private. The outdoor bathroom with two showers and separate toilet was a unique design we wish we could replicate. The swimming pool was a good size and private, more so that some of the other villas we walked past on our way down to the spa near the river, but all equally nice. The outdoor area was impressive, we had a good size table for eating, sun loungers and a wooden deck that we used for yoga - reception were happy to supply mats for us to borrow.

The villas are well designed and furnished, although very open to the elements, we liked the open plan nature and great views from the top room while eating breakfast. We stayed during the rainy season and did not experience any issues with water coming in but at night it was impossible to stop insects coming in (except for the bedroom, this was sealed and had aircon) this did not really bother us but it's worth remembering you are in the jungle so expect insects.

The food was good quality with a wide choice at breakfast, we also ate lunch and dinner at the villa, the service was always very good, we enjoyed the freedoms to eat in our villa at times to suit us.

As other reviewers have mentioned the villas are on a steep hill so choose your villa carefully if you have mobility issues. The villas are also located 10mins drive from ubud but a free drop off/pick up service is available, we were given a mobile phone to arrange a town pick up at a time to suit us. We found it great being in a more remote location but still easy enough to get to town.

While here we did a cycle ride with a very knowledgable local guide, it was a nice easy route through the local villages and paddy fields, a great way to explore the local area.

Overall we had a very relaxing and private stay, we would not hesitate to return here again and wishes we could have stayed longer.

From the moment we stepped out of the transfer vehicle to the moment we departed, Bidadari Villa staff placed us at number 1 priority. The food was exceptional, the views were breathtaking.
We stayed with our 3 children aged 9 - 15 and we all relaxed and enjoyed the stay.
Mr Rani and all of the staff were beautiful and we definitely got what we paid for. The villa stay is $$ however it was worth every cent.

Room Tip: Be prepared to be woken up by the local roosters.

the bidadari villas can give you that very rare feeling of unpretentious luxury and at the same time they make you feel at home. we had villa # 4 and 5 . they are both different yet the feeling they convey is the same : you feel relaxed from the first moment to the last. the rooms are very stylish and have everything one needs - spaciousness , romantic places , room for privacy. the pools we had are small but all you need - a place to cool down after a day in the busy village of ubud!
all the people who work there , from the manager to the cleaning girl , are friendly and their niceness is real .
if we ever go back to ubud we will certainly stay there again!
thanks for wonderful memories.....
